Gascoigne follows Foden and dyes hair blond to recreate iconic Euro 96 haircut

Phil Foden has opted for a Gazza-like blonde haircut ahead of Euro 2020 this summer – inspiring the ex-England midfielder to even revive it himself.

Fans were quick to point out the similarity between Foden's new peroxide blonde barnet and Paul Gascoigne's famous trim at Euro 96, despite the Manchester City ace insisting he was not intending to replicate it.

A few days out from England's opening Euro 2020 fixture Gascoigne has got into the spirit by bringing the hairstyle back himself, but he is more interested in Foden emulating him on the pitch.

Gazza told The Mirror: “I love to watch him play – we have so many exciting youngsters coming through."

The Three Lions legend has also urged Foden to copy him even further by recreating his iconic 'Dentist's Chair' celebration if he scores at the major tournament this summer.

Gazza and his England team-mates performed the celebration after his wondergoal against Scotland 25 years ago, poking fun at an infamous newspaper story on the squad's boozy pre-tournament trip to Hong Kong.

He added: “If Phil Foden scores, he should do the Dentist’s chair – and I will pour the cocktail down his throat.

“I think that goal was my greatest in an England shirt, and the celebration made it the greatest moment.

“So tell Phil Foden I will take him on one on one in my back garden."

While he says the new haircut is not a tribute to Gazza, Foden will be more than happy if he lives up to the England hero on the pitch this summer.

"I've had the same haircut for ages now so I thought I would try something new and woke up this morning with a lot of comparisons to Gazza and Eminem," he explained.

"It was my own thing and people have turned it into something else.

"I remember watching highlights on the TV of Gazza, unbelievable player," added the 21-year-old, who was born four years after the last European Championships to be staged in England.

"The full nation knows what he means for the country and what he did. I wouldn't be too bad if I try to bring a bit of Gazza on the pitch."
